Nursery Room Flags May 29, 2012

Even though we absolutely LOVE how the nursery turned out, it still looked like something was missing on those big green walls. I didn’t want to hang pictures or anything that might fall in an earthquake (we do live in Los Angeles!), but it needed something to fill the space.


I saw a bunch of pictures on Pinterest and Etsy of these pendant flags and I decided to try my luck at making my own.

So I went to Jo-Ann Fabrics armed with lots of coupons and picked out four fabrics that match the sage/brown colors of the baby’s room.
I love the wood-looking one! Matches the deer!

I had some girls over for craft night, and I dusted off my sewing machine and hoped for the best using this tutorial (only I didn’t do my two-sided).

I have to say, they came out pretty amazing. I LOVE them! It definitely fills the wall and blends in the colors together!




They are pretty when they blow in the wind when the fan is on too. I have enough cut triangles to make one more strand of them, but I’m not sure it needs it. What do you think?

And extra-special thanks to the husband for hanging them up for me!
“A little higher up. No.. too high. Down a little. Left just a smidge. PERFECT!”

He’s such a great guy. =) He’s seriously going to be the BEST dad!


Psst! I had leftover fabric and embarked on another sewing project too! I’ll share that with you this week as well!

      I suggested that, but it might look too piecemeal there. If I get bored down the road, I might make it and see where it looks best. =)
